Your face is the most obvious part of your body. It is also one of the most complex parts of your body. There are 12 cranial nerves which map across your face and head. Your face has all senses present too, such as sight, taste, smell, hearing, and sensation/touch. When a New Mexico auto accident causes face injuries, the results could be physically and emotionally devastating. Victims of vehicle wrecks causing personal injuries, including face injuries, may be entitled to compensation. Learn more here in the post from our New Mexico auto accident lawyer.
